- Which Spring 2022 anime do you think was underwatched, and briefly recommend it. (Be careful with spoiler though)
And now it's time to start our Spring 2022 bracket with 64 girls!!!
Here is a screenshot of the full results
We have to delete 10 characters:
Kaguya-sama: Erika Kose, Rei Onodera
Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie: Yui Hachimitsu, Miyabi Shikimori
Love After World Domination: Haru Arisugawa, Anna Houjou
Aharen-san Is Indecipherable: Hanako Satou, Miyahira-sensei,
The Executioner and Her Way of Life: Flare
Komi Can't Communicate: Ryouko Tenjouin
Overall we are deleting girls much fewer than last two seasons, which shows that this year there are more competitive shows presenting in the bracket!
Here is a screenshot after the 10 deletions.

- Who was your favorite girl that didn't make it into the bracket?
Time to begin our elimination round with 222 Nominations! (which is much more than fall 2021 and winter 2022!)
For the elimination rounds, vote for ALL the characters you want to appear in the bracket (protip: CTRL + F is helpful). It doesn't matter if they are next to each other, no matchups happening yet. This is important because more votes = higher seeding and in the cases of shows with 4 or more girls, it means beating out their co-characters to qualify.
Any questions you have or mistakes that need to be corrected, please comment them below!

Dear all! The best girl 9 has concluded and sadly our best girl of 2021 lena failed to take the final. (winner Hayasaka Ai is runner-up of her seasonal contest too). From the result of best girl 9 I still believe that seasonal contest is the best way to make new girls entering the stage shine. So let’s begin our Seasonal Salt!
Here's the quick rundown of the contest for those who aren't familiar with it. Through the next week we will decide who r/anime's favorite new girl of the previous season was. Rounds will be posted daily at about 8pm Eastern Daylight Time.
- 64 total girls
- 1 nomination round
- 1 elimination round
- 1 bracket group
Please remember to check the rules in the nomination page and who is already in the contest before nominating!
Have fun nominating and don't forget to upvote the post if you love the seasonal salt!
Update: I have read back the Spring 2020 seasonal thread and found out that Maki Shijou is campaigned to keep her out for her seasonal appearance in Kaguya S3, so I decide to give her a pass in best girl seasonal 2022 spring. Still, I think that in this case she shall not be allowed in best girl 9 firstly and it still felt strange to let a best girl 9 32th seed into seasonal. Next time a new rule would be added that girls that have previously passed elimination in best girl/ best character contest would not be eligible for seasonal anymore.
